The Hilden Charitable Fund was established in 1963 by Joan and Tony Rampton. It is a grant making foundation registered with the UK Charity Commission, Charity Registration Number: 232591. The Hilden Charitable Fund awards grants to projects both in theUK and in developing countries. The aim of the fund is to address disadvantages, notably by supporting causes which are less likely to raise funds from public subscriptions. Both the UK and overseas fund policy is directed largely at supporting work at community level.

You can find out more about the origins of The Hilden Charitable Fund and its structure in the About Us Section of the website and by viewing our Annual Report

For an interesting and humorous view of grant making take a look at the Cartoons by Cal Younger. Cal is one of Hilden's Trustees.


Current Funding Guidelines

In the UK: Hilden’s grant making priorities are: Homelessness, Penal Affairs, Asylum Seekers and Refugees, and Community Based initiatives for Disadvantaged Young People Aged 16 to 25.

Hilden’s grant making priorities overseas are for projects in developing countries working on community development, education, and health. Trustees will particularly welcome projects that address the needs and potential of girls and women. Trustees will be pleased to hear from UK Non Governmental Organisations/charities and hope that UK NGOs/charities will encourage their local partners to apply directly to Hilden for grant aid.

Average grants are £5,000.  Hilden will consider funding for more than one year.


 Each year The Hilden Charitable Fund runs a Summer Playschemes funding programme. Further details on this are in the Summer Playschemes Section which includes an application form.
